William Mitchell 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament


Dear Friends,

We invite you to join us for the annual William Mitchell 3-on-3 Tournament on Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 1pm on the campus of UMS-Wright Preparatory School.  Middle and upper school students as well as alumni are encouraged to participate in this fun and competitive tournament. 

The Class of 2005 along with the Student Government Association established the William Mitchell 3-on-3 Tournament in the spring of 2005 as a way to honor William’s boundless energy and gentle manner that family and friends will always remember. William had attended UMS-Wright for almost fourteen years before his tragic death during his senior year in 2005. Though he was so much more than just a high school athlete, it was his basketball skills and his dedication and passion for the sport that really distinguished his years at our school.

All proceeds will benefit The William Alexander Lewis Mitchell Memorial Scholarship at UMS-Wright.  Our hope is that William’s athletic talent and his contributions to UMS-Wright, both on and off the court, will be honored through this unique event and scholarship for years to come.  Each year the scholarship will be presented to a young man, preferably a member of the UMS-Wright Varsity Men’s Basketball Team. The recipient must be of good academic standing and good moral character and reputation, and adhere to the UMS-Wright Code of Conduct at all times.

We would love your participation or support as we raise money for the William Alexander Lewis Mitchell Memorial Scholarship.  Enclosed is the flyer with the tournament details.  Please mail team registration fees and donations to UMS-Wright, Attn: Advancement Office, 65 Mobile Street, Mobile, Alabama, 36607.   Checks should be made payable to UMS-Wright.  Donations can also be made online at www.ums-wright.org/donate by selecting the William Alexander Lewis Mitchell Memorial Scholarship in the designation drop down menu.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on March 31st!
